Research Impact Report

Our Research Impact Report highlights the progress of pioneering research we fund and its impact on improving the quality of life and survival rates for those diagnosed with a brain tumour.

In 2015, we launched our research strategy – A Cure Can't Wait– in which we committed to improving outcomes for everyone diagnosed with a brain tumour.

We know the only way to do this is by funding only the very best, world-class research to help us reach our goal – to double the survival and halve the harm that brain tumours have.

We are proud to fund 48 revolutionary research projects, both here in the UK and around the world helping to do just that. And, as the UK's largest, dedicated funder of research into brain tumours, we have a rigorous process in place before selecting what we fund. And we continue to review and monitor its impact throughout the funding stage – and beyond.

The report has been created with the help of independent consultancy, Fulcrum Direct, who kindly completed this work pro-bono; we are very thankful.

Thanks also go to everyone who gave their input during the creation of the report – from those personally affected to researchers in the field, we couldn't have created this without your help.
